French knitting is a lovely way to use up little odds of wool and the perfect portable project too. This DIY will show you a simple way of using your French knitting to make flowers!
Pick some wool and make yourself a length of knitting that is approximately 50 to 60 cms long. Measure this piece from the top of the dolly to the bottom of your knitting, not including the tail of wool at the end. Cast this off as normal. If you need a refresher on French knitting you can find my tutorial here.
Thread your darning needle with a matching length of yarn. I’ve used a dark blue in the photos below so that you can see my stitches. Fold the end of your knitting over and secure in place with a stitch. Keep folding loops and stitch them into petals. When you get to the last one, join the last to your first. I like six petals but five looks nice too.
